Ran it during the flood a few months ago (maury at 8,000cfs) and it was a really fun run. I put in
just about the falls and ran it out through to the maury take out. However, I hiked up there with
some buddies this past week and there is now a bunch of wood down across the creek a hundred yards
or so below the falls and some above it. Depending on the level and flow, you might be able to run
the falls then take out before the strainers, but when i ran it the flow was so pushy that once you
committed above the falls there was no eddy to catch before where the wood is now. And when i say
wood, I mean very large logs and trees have come down across the whole creek in 3 or more places
and it would be a very intense job to remove them all. Though I intend to try to clean it all out
later in the spring.

Mark and I did our first run down Laurel today, the Maury was running about 4,000 cfs. It was very
tight, but passable from above Lace Falls on down. Keep an out for one river wide ugly portage,
clogged with logs and other debris.
